Houston Area Leachate Removal and Destruction Summary
Samples were obtained from a Houston Area Landfill in April of 2023. Initial Characterization Studies showed approximately 60 PPB Total Mixed PFAS ranging from short chain C-4 Molecules to the longer chain C-8 Molecules in the suite of analysis performed by Pace Analytical Laboratories in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Following the initial Collection and Concentration steps, the Treated Water had a resultant Total PFAS concentration of 27 ppt. Following concentration and dewatering, the collected solids were subjected to destruction conditions in our Pilot Scale electrolytic cell and subjected to a DC current of 30 amp/sq cm. Residence time in this batch reactor system was approximately 60 minutes.
